Recycle glass jars and make some festive decoupaged candle holders for your holiday table! This decoupage with tissue paper is a great project for all ages with gorgeous results, and if you have the supplies on hand, well, you're in luck, since there's still time to grace your table with these for the upcoming holiday!
I used floating candles instead of the usual tea lights, and I just love how it looks, don't you?
- tissue paper
- mod podge or a mix of half water half white glue
- flower or scalloped circle punches, in a few sizes, including tiny ones too!
- a large paint brush
Punch several layers of tissue paper at one time for the best results in punching the desired shapes. If you don't have any punches, of course good old scissors certainly can do the trick! Apply a little mod podge to your jar with a brush and carefully place the tissue paper shapes on the mod podge. Smooth very carefully with fingers and after all the shapes are in place, brush another coat of mod podge on top, again working very carefully so as not to tear the tissue paper. Set aside to dry and enjoy. And of course, these little jars would be adorable vases to hold wild flowers or greenery, so make a bunch!
